Default Camber Gain

Should camber gain be double the staic camber?

Thumbs up camber basics............

It all depends on what you have set for roll centers. You can make it what you want. Most people run between 1 additional degree of camber which has very aggressive side bite, to +3 degrees of camber gain which has much less side bite when loaded.
Put your car on the table and load the side of the chassis as though the car is cornering (downward and angled side pressure towards the out side edge of the loaded tire). Now check the edge of the tire and how the carcass reacts. This will tell you where you need to go. Once you get it where you like then sit it upright and measure the static or neutral camber then compress the suspension evenly and measure the gain.
In general, if the edge of the tire touches off the car will be bighty and "edgy". If you have too much gain then the car will be loose depending on which end you are talking about (front or rear).
Hope this helps,
TEX
